What can the photographer capture at distance will always be one major factor that will mean the difference between purchasing a camera body. When the person behind the body and the experience together with the right settings and right light conditions is when you can be out of range of your subject but still get a nice image you can post and write about after post editing.
Yesterday I spotted a Curlew in the distance and with sunbehindme I took some images. Using Lightroom mobile I did a very heavy crop and some slight adjustments
This is the the power of having megapixels at your disposal. I will be very honest when I say the Sony A7r4 200-600 will stay with me even if in the future I get another camera.
